    Police: Son Threatens Mom With Gun on Mother's Day

    Police say a Maine man armed with a gun threatened his mother on Mother's Day.

    The Portland Press Herald reports police responded around 8 p.m. Sunday when the woman reported she had fled a Buxton home after 26-year-old Adam Sanborn threatened her.

    Police set up a perimeter around the home after Sanborn refused to speak with officers.

    Sanborn eventually left the home, and police apprehended him before he got into a car parked in the driveway. Police say he threw a loaded handgun under the car as he was being arrested.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
